Holiday Fraud Ramping Up


It’s a warning for you when you do your holiday shopping: thieves are hoping to take advantage of all those holiday shoppers and distractions. Local banks say they see a lot of credit card fraud this time of year. The Regional President for Central and Eastern Oregon with U.S. Bank has some advice. Stacey Dodson says now is a good time to downsize your wallet: “So I think its a good time to remind our customers to be on their guard with their credit cards; and that can be as simple as only taking the cards you are going to use that day. So for example if you're shopping here in Central Oregon, best to not bring your department store cards for stores we don't have in this community." And if you're shopping online;  Dodson warns of emails that look like they are coming from legitimate banks or retailers, but are actually crooks trying to get your personal and financial information.
